Durham, NH (Vocus/PRWEB) March 31, 2011
Home to the University of New Hampshire and right on the water, Durham is a small, coastal town with a population of just over 14,000 residents. However, because much of the town is centered around the college, most of the population consists of “urban sophisticates”. (That’s census talk for hip and youthful people still in or just out of college.)
Because of the younger population and the number of jobs offered by the college, Durham is bustling with restaurants, shopping and things going on, all of which keeps the economy of the town up. With the economy doing as well as it is, the average household income, as of 2009, for a family of four was $114,757 and the average home value is $372,230. For a twenty three year old fresh out of college or a young, newly married couple, that may sound like a lot of money, but houses and apartments are not as available as one would think- 56% of the Durham population own their homes and 43% rent. With such high percentages, there is only a very small amount of vacant apartments and single family homes available.
